What is Compost?

Compost  is the product resulting from the controlled biological decomposition of organic material , plant matter that has been decomposed and recycled as a fertilizer and soil amendment. Compost is a key ingredient in organic farming. At its most essential, the process of composting requires simply piling up waste outdoors and waiting a year or more. Modern, methodical composting is a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water, air and carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials. The decomposition process is aided by shredding the plant matter, adding water and ensuring proper aeration by regularly turning the mixture. Worms and fungi further break up the material.Aerobic bacteria manage the chemical process by converting the inputs into heat, carbon dioxide and ammonium. The ammonium is further converted by bacteria into plant-nourishing nitrites and nitrates through the process of nitrification.

Compost can be rich in nutrients. It is used in gardenslandscapinghorticulture, and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer, addition of vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction, and as landfill cover (see compost uses).

Garden Compost

Compost is generally recommended as an additive to soil, or other matrices such as coir and peat, as a tilth improver, supplying humus and nutrients. It provides a rich growing medium, or a porous, absorbent material that holds moisture and soluble minerals, providing the support and nutrients in which plants can flourish, although it is rarely used alone, being primarily mixed with soilsand, grit, barkchips, vermiculiteperlite, or clay granules to produce loam.

Application of compost to the land helps to amend and protect soils in a variety of ways. First, compost supplies nutrients essential to plant growth. Nitrogen is of particular importance because it is often the limiting element in agricultural soils. In comparison to that of many soluble inorganic fertilizers, the percentage of nitrogen in compost is low (usually under 2 percent). In some cropping systems, compost may need to be supplemented with fertilizers in order to supply all the nitrogen needs of the plants being grown. Compost is an advantageous source of nitrogen because compost-nitrogen is in organic form and must be mineralized before it has the potential to leach and to contaminate water supplies (such as groundwater). Mineralization (the conversion of organic forms of an element into inorganic forms) occurs slowly in natural systems. Compost additions to soil help create organic reserves that release nutrients incrementally over many years. Compost can therefore be applied in large quantities to soil systems with little danger of excess nutrient accumulation.
